Surfer magazine has turned its how-to series from Kelly Slater into an interactive online feature. The 11-time ASP champ offers advice on everything from mixing and matching turns to the alley-oop.

Slideshows and numbered displays make his advice easy to understand, but pulling any of his eight tips off will take quite a bit of work—and sometimes a healthy dose of courage. The last advice he offers is for surviving a slab.

If that's not enough advice from Slater, the surfer recently talked to The New York Times about finding waves.
